Doctor’s Course

Doctor’s CourseStudents will be awarded the Doctor of Philosophy (Agricultural Science) upon completion of a satisfactory dissertation. To be awarded a Ph.D., students must complete a six semesters of coursework over a three-year period. The course consists of tutorials and tutorial exercises, usually given in a seminar format. Students must conduct thesis research under the supervision of advisory faculty members, and will be expected to have some of their work published in scientific journals.

Students must submit their dissertation in English to the course committee. An oral presentation of their dissertation is required in the spring semester of the final year.
